Get ready for the all-new second season of Kaijumax! All the Red Humongo wants to do is go straight now that he's out on parole, but his good-for-nothing brother Green Humongo has escaped from Kaijumax and is crashing at his house, with fellow escapee Electrogor in tow. Out-of-work guard Jeong drinks his troubles away on the moon, while new police recruit Chisato throws herself enthusiastically into her first day on the job. Also: Blindside tackles! Filial piety! Savage beatings! And... a Flintstones reference?

    If there was any fear that Kaijumaxmight hit a sophomore slump, like any well-written crime procedural typically does, you ought to know that is completely opposite to being the case.There are enough ideas and heart in this premiere issueto fill a 1000-page political manifesto — only it's less severe than that. Megalon vs. Mark Fuhrman. How do you approach such an idea? Like society, you just let it happen. But you better make damn sure to engage with the issuesthat falloutlays atyour feet. To approachKaijumax like it wereany other monster mash… well. Nobody should put up withthat ambergris. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - C.K. Stewart May 1, 2017

    Kaijumax is an unusual and engaging read for any kaiju fan looking for a new take on their favorite monstrous pop culture figures, and for anyone who appreciates a healthy dose of emotional turmoil with their graphic novels. Cannon has created a world that's at once outlandish and relatable, touching on the critical roots of Japanese monster films with an American twist that delivers emotional intensity without getting bogged down on offering a take that's excessively grim or adult for the sake of it.

    One of the best books you're not reading! It's funny how you can get commentary on socioeconomic issues currently affecting the US while using Kaijus but that's the mark of a good writer.
